Myoepithelioma is a very rare benign neoplasm, which is composed entirely of myoepithelial cells and accounts for <1% of all salivary gland tumors. Of all the myoepitheliomas arising from salivary glands, 26% involve the minor salivary glands of the oral cavity, where the palate is the most common origin of intraoral myoepithelioma. Final diagnosis of myoepithelioma can only be done by histopathological examination and cannot be predicted preoperatively solely on clinical or radiographic grounds. We are presenting a case of myoepithelioma of soft palate in a 35-year-old female patient with emphasis on its radiological and histopathological appearances.
